I am a beginning knitter and am going to start my first knitting project using circular needles. Here: http://www.overstock.com/Crafts-Sewi...2/product.html
I have watched a few videos about how to use circular needles but am wondering if anyone had any other advice. I am just going to knit a simple cowl using some Lion Brand chunky wool yarn.
How many stitches should I cast on?
Is there a certain type of pattern I should use?
And also, I know that I should use a stitch marker, but I am confused (again, beginner here) as to how to get the stitch marker off once have completed the project? It's probably very simple, but this is just a whole new concept for me.
Thank you so much for the help!!
